NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinians during a raid into al-Faraa refugee camp in northern Nablus city early Tuesday.

Locals told Ma'an that clashes erupted between soldiers and youths after Israeli forces raided the refugee camp around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Israeli soldiers fired tear-gas canisters and stun grenades, while youths threw rocks and empty bottles.

The detainees were identified as Sanad Mutaz Sawalmeh, 20, and Abd al-Rahman Ibrahim Abu Shqeir, 35.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the arrests, saying the two had been detained for "illegal activity."

Israeli forces routinely detain Palestinians throughout the West Bank, often on the pretext of perceived security threat, and Addameer estimates that 40 percent of the Palestinian male population has been arrested at some point.

More than 6,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently being held in Israeli jails.
